Flamenco, ballet and jazz, oh my! In this beginners course you can master a world of dance steps from the comfort of your living room!

Did you know that dancing has been proven to improve brain memory and emotional health? Dancing also has anti-aging benefits! A study published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience showed that people's age-related degeneration in brain structure improved dramatically when participating in a weekly choreographed dance class.

So - what are you waiting for? Let's dance!
